Al Harris and Atari Bigby on PUP list.

The Green Bay Packers placed cornerback Al harris and safety Atari Bigby on the physically unable to perform list today. This means that they can not practice with the team until they are off the PUP list which can not happen for six weeks. Al and Atari are a big part of their secondary and will be missed. But the Packers have to move on, and trust that their other players can get the job done. This opens the door for rookies CB Sam Shields and safety Morgan Burnett. Morgan will start at safety and will be relied on to make plays and Sam Shields will be the starting nickel. Shields didn’t expect to be starting week one but it will probably happen. If they don’t produce, the Packers defense is going to have to relay on their offense to stay in the game. Look for some high scoring affairs in the first half of the season.
